    I'm curious if there is an App that can have actions set-up to be completed when it's ran?

    For instance, I would like to press a pinned icon than when clicked, it does the following:

    - Opens Pandora (or Nokia Music, Extreme Music, etc)
    - Turns Bluetooth on and connects to my BT speakers
    - Sets volume at Max volume

    Unfortunately I don't think it is possible to make an app do that...

    this can be done with some external help.
    u should get NFC tags and u can program them in this way. then, with one single tap, u can get multiple tasks done.

    I've looked on the app store for WP and didn't see anything that would allow multiple steps for an NFC tag. On the other hand, I don't have any tags to test it with? And only need one...

    This pretty much. The public API doesn't allow you to see a list of installed applications, from what I understand.

    If I were to make 3 separate NFC tags that did the listed steps, could it complete each task fairly quickly or would it not even be worth doing? Sorry, not much experience with NFC.

    Just to let you guys know. I was able to get some NFC tags to work with. I could not find an app that will 'toggle' settings like Android's will:

    https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...actionlauncher


    However, I was able to find an app that would allow a 'profile' to be created with multiple steps. When you lanch the tag, complete one setting, hit back, next setting, back, etc. It still will not allow just a toggle. Any idea of some WP8 apps that toggle settings from NFC tags?
